Events

2.) Conversation Café/Let’s Talk Lunch
Noon Nov. 28, Cultural Center, Belknap Campus
Free
What defines a family? Who is in your family? Not everyone has the same definition of family or even of “home.” In fact, some people feel UofL is more “home” than anyplace else. Who is in your UofL family — students? Faculty/staff? On Wednesday, First Year Initiatives will use examples from “The Other Wes Moore” as we discuss different perspectives people on our campus have on family and home — all over free lunch.

Are you familiar with workplace incivility? Do you know what this means or how this could affect you? Conflict happens, no matter what.

Information Technology
6.) ULMobile app no longer supported on Blackberry
Blackboard, Inc. will no longer support the ULMobile app on Blackberry devices. Blackboard cited the small number of Blackberry users, the lengthy development process for Blackberry, and the growing number of companies that have dropped Blackberry as reasons behind the decision. IT recommends that Blackberry users access ULMobile by going to ulmobile.louisville.edu rather than directly through the app. The Blackboard Mobile Learn app will continue to be supported for Blackberry.
